Please re-encode in 4:2:0 subsampling instead of 4:4:4
As the previous reviews have indicated, I tried to play this mkv in my Blu-ray player and only got sound with no picture.
This is because the Blu-ray standard does not support 4:4:4 color subsampling, but only 4:2:0 color subsampling at 8-bit.
If the orignal archiver of this 35-mm transcode of SONG OF THE SOUTH may kindly re-encode it at 1080p at 4:2:0 color subsampling using the h.264 codec (AVC), it will play in all standalone Blu-ray players.
I suggest doing this and releasing a v. 3.0 of the title.
Until then, sadly, I and many other people will not be able to play this content on our standalone players on our 1080p displays.
This simple expedient will enable us to view this film in MUCH higher quality than it has ever been seen in the last 50 years. Please consider doing this re-encode. Thank you for making this long "lost" (or, rather -- intentionally buried and forgotten) Disney title available.
My rating will increase to 5 if the re-encode in proper 4:2:0 color subsampling will be uploaded!

ISO is .mpgv video file
The "ISO Image" is actually an mpeg 1/2 video format file that uses the extension:*.mpgv .
Further, the only video player I've been able to find that can load the video is the popular and free VLC from videolan.
There are two audio tracks:English and Japanese, both selectable from within VLC.
The best rendition of this movie I've found and I've searched a lot.
Four stars instead of five for missing the format details

Ótima Restauração / Great Restoration
Obrigado por ter feito essa restauração e ter disponibilizado esse arquivo! Usei o seu arquivo e coloquei o áudio em português brasileiro. As cópias em português eram de qualidade bem inferior. Irei disponibilizar a minha versão em português brasileiro.
Thank you for completing this restore and making this file available! I used your file and I put the audio in Brazilian Portuguese. The copies in Portuguese were of inferior quality. I will make my version available in Brazilian Portuguese.
Looks great to me! I recall seeing this in the theater in my home town!

Amazing but... after 1:03 a little jerky
Please PLEASE get an updated version of this to fix the jerkyness around the 1:03 mark. Everything else is as flawless as anyone can expect.

Best edition I've ever seen, but...
Your restoration work is fantastic, thank you very much.
But I have one remark, everything is fine on your video file until time 1h03min, the film's image becomes jerky, the action is no longer fluid (the iso version and the light H264 version have the same problem).
Could you correct this problem, or is it impossible to do?
